Clay's Park Resort

13190 Patterson St. N.W.
North Lawrence, OH 44666


Clay's Park was the vision and dedicated work of our grandfather, Mr. Otis D.Clay.

The property for the park was secured in 1945 through the purchase of several tracts of land just southwest of Canal Fulton, Ohio.

Plans were developed around Otis's vision and work began in 1947. A complete "Family Fun Center" was the goal. The first task after clearing the land, was to tap into the natural spring that fed another lake on the property.

Countless man hours were spent on crafting this wonderous vision and on Memorial Day, 1948, Clay's Park officially opened it's gates to hordes of eager and curious visitors. People came from miles around to take in the natural beauty and excitment generated by this new man-made wonder.

More than fifty years later, our Dad, Mom, Brothers and Sister continue to serve the community just as we did in the beginning.

According to the CEO, Kevin McQuaide and COO, Peggy Clay McQuaide, our growth has allowed us not only to development one of the finest RV Resorts in America but also to expand our newly renovated Melody Barn for music lovers.

Our grandfather's vision has now evolved to include two nationally known festivals at Clay's Park. For many years Clay's Park has been the host of thousands of people attending Yankee Peddler(32 years) and the ALIVE Christian Music Festival(17 years). Rock N Resort Music Festival(2nd year) and Fox Creek Outdoor Experience(3rd year)are two new festivals that Clay's Park is also hosting.
